POSTFIGHT
Codrington can be seen all choked up, crying in his corner as they announce Bika as the winner, but he's got absolutely nothing to be upset about...well, except for not getting the money...but after a performance like that, he's stock is only going to go up. Codrington says Sakio Bika is a warrior. He was proud to be in there against a great opponent. Sugar Ray Leonard presents the belt to Bika. "First of all, I want to say that this fight here symbolizes what a champion is all about, what a contender is all about; blood, sweat and tears. And without question, I present this belt to you, Sakio, for being the Contender Champion. Job well done son. Job well done. God bless you man." Bika says that he thought he had him in the first round, but Jaidon recovered really quickly. "He was a very big puncher," stated Bika, who said the first round was really hard. Bika thanks The Contender, ESPN, his mom, dad, friends from Australia and all of his fans for their support. Leonard states, "these guys displayed so much heart, so much determination. I was trulyl amazed by their resilience, by their recuperative powers and both guys, Jaidon and Sakio, just true fighters, real warriors, real contenders!"

What a fuqin fight! That was not only the Contender series fight I have seen, but one of the best, if not the best, fights I have seen all year. Merchant would have been messin his pants had he been commentating this one.
KYLE THEEE SPINKS FAN
That was an amazing fight, and one of the best of this year. I really feel bad for Jaidon going through what he went through with his Father passing, and losing the fight. He's a really tough guy though with a lot of potential, and he can do some big things. Bika has really resurrected his career with this Contender tourney. He avenged the loss to Soliman, and now KO'd Codrington. He's a hell of a fighter, and will get some big fights coming up. It was a great night for boxing, and there will be some interesting matchups to be made.

Helluva fight both of these guys deserve to win.

The best Contender fight out of all the seasons.
STEVENSKI
Bika is a quality fighter. Going the distance with Joe C, Bute & getting a dogy draw against Beyer is nothing to be ashamed of IMO. The most deserving fighter won.
Southeastpaw
I saw flashes of Mayorga in Bika tonight.

Many of those shots were W I D E as hell.

Awesome fight though.

I have never watched a contender episode besides one of the early ones from the first season. Anything changed since? Gained any credibility? Or still the same edited BS?

The finales are never edited. They are just like ESPN Friday Night Fights and holy shit this was a good fight. As much as I hate the normal episodes of The Contender, this fight gained my absolute respect. It was Gatti/Ward type action.

This is one of the better fights THIS YEAR, let alone just The Contender.

Might have to check the final out only.

How far did Soliman make it and how did he lose and to whom?

He got to the semi-finals. I believe he lost a decision to the new Contender champ, Sakio Bika
Thegreatequalizer
that was definitely a great fight. they both really went for it from the opening bell. even though codrington lost, i think his stock really went up. he showed a fairly good chin taking as many clean shots as he did, which should make him feel a lot better about the allan green fight. definitely a contender for fight of the year. it's too bad i had to look at ray leonard's annoying face as long i did.

Cool. Thanks man.
BigG
I wanted Jaidon to win the whole thing. At least he went far. Bika is a tough tough guy.
Southeastpaw
Bika had the much stiffer competition throughout the series. But it is ironic that the only guy to have won his fights by KO before the final was Jaidon, then he was the one getting KOed in the final. The only fights throughout the entire series to end in KOs were all Jaidon's. lol

I was hoping either Bika or Sam would win the whole thing. I was predicting Sam and Bika in the final. It is a tragic thing what happened with Jaidon and his father dieing during the show. But Jaidon left a bad impression on me the way he dealt with Vera. He was a real prick to Vera and Vera was a cool guy. I was waiting for Jaidon to get KOed from that point on. And Bika delivered.
PR316
Wanted Jaidon to win it all. And I think the fight was much closer than Teddy Atlas had it. I had them pretty much alternating rounds. If there's a rematch, Jaidon could pull it off if somebody actually got him to BOX instead of fighting wild and crazy against a tough SOB like Bika who has given tough fights to the likes of Calzaghe and Solomon.


BTW, Jaidon's girlfriend is pretty hot.
singletrack
Very entertaining fight. I think Bika should give Jaidon some moolah to get his gyno removed. I can't focus on the fight with his tities bouncing all over the place.
